Mamma Mia, Here I Go Again

Read this for a synopsis of the movie.

There might be minor spoilers in this post so read only if you don't mind knowing beforehand la..

Thanks to Nuffnang, a friend and I got to watch Mamma Mia! the movie for free last night!

And I must say, I love it!! <3

People who know me well would know I love musicals but I like this one especially because it was so full of happiness!

They dance, they sing (yes I know that's what they are supposed to do in a musical) but they just seemed so happy being so wacky. They make me wish I will be as young at heart as them when I'm their age.

I guess sometimes it's okay to do crazy things once in a while. =) I think I'd learnt to be more unrestrained in the past 2 years.

Donna and her friends dancing to A*Teens' "Dancing Queen"

with weird combinations of clothing on them - ain't it funny?

The uncle sitting beside me was unabashedly singing away to most of the songs. He must be a pretty big fan coz he knew most of the words and didn't care that people were looking at him weirdly haha... Guess he's another one that is young at heart as well.

Amanda Seyfield who plays Sophie and Meryl Streep who plays Donna both did a great job, their on-screen persona were just too irresistably bubbly and cute! hehe..

these are the 3 potential fathers of Sophie

she thought she would be able to know which is her dad by looking at them..but things are never that simple

And yes, the guy in the middle is Pierce Brosnan (of Bond, James Bond fame) lol.

This is Donna and the Dynamos, her old band

omg the costumes and songs were so old-school that I couldn't help cringing lol!

how they burst into song suddenly - I love their spontaneity! I want to be like that too!

oh ya, look at the woman behind Donna wearing a bra on the outside, rotfl!!

I wasn't an ABBA fan before this but this movie has converted me~ I love all their songs.. They make me feel like singing and dancing!

*sings "Honey Honey, how he thrills me" coughs - okay i think I'll stop singing now*

omg the dance floor is just so colourful! I likey~

The decorations in the movie were lovely too. I especially love how they string this line of tiny lights all along the path up the hill to the church. So beautiful! and the little candles in white bottles strewn above the criss-crossing bars overhead for the dinner party for the wedding. omigosh.. you just have to see it to know what i mean!

My favourite part of this movie is the energy exuded by the cast! Their laughter and happiness is so infective!

I dunno, maybe I've been trying too hard to not mope around like a wilted flower these days - that this sort of movie is just the thing to raise my spirits. I felt so deliriously happy after the movie. ^v^ yet again something I'd not felt for a long time.

Anyway, I highly recommend this movie to everyone who just wants simple good happy fun!

*sings and dances around like a mad woman to the mamma mia songs lol*
